Welcome to The Hesitant Adventurer! I'm Emma, an anxious traveller seeking an adventurous life.
The Hesitant Adventurer was born out of my love for travel and my recent shift into the digital nomad way of life. I own an e-commerce agency with my husband and we have taken our business completely digital*. Our remote team, including us, can work from anywhere. We now travel full time, which has been a long-time dream come true.
This means for the first time in my life I am free from the constraints of the 2 week vacation allowance of most jobs. Freedom!
With this increase in time spent travelling I have become all the more aware of my struggles with anxiety. Travelling forces you into new, and often stressful, situations. Things can be unpredictable, unknown, and downright anxiety-inducing.
I have learned that, like it or not, my anxiety is a part of me. While it's not always easy, I love to try new things, take risks, and have adventures. I love to travel, eat, and explore the world, and do so, sometimes hesitantly and sometimes completely fearlessly.
The Hesitant Adventurer documents my world travels, new experiences, and advice for staying grounded and centred while on the move. Follow along with me as I hesitantly adventure through life as a full-time traveller.
